Thanksgiving is over

The yearly weight gain has begun. I’m going to have to fast for two weeks to break even. Oh well, it’s back to work. if you’re doing some shipping this holiday season, and who isn’t, you might be using our shipping labels. It’s not too hard to add graphics to make the labels look good.
If you use Microsoft Word 2007, here’s how you do it.
Click on the Mailings tab, between the References and Review tabs.
Then click on Labels in the Create panel on the left.
The Envelopes and Labels dialogue box should pop up. Here is where you’ll select your label layout.
One choice for shipping label could be the Avery 5164 which has 6 labels per page and each label is 4″ X 3-1/3″.
Click on “Label”, and another dialog box will pop up and you can choose “Avery US Letter” in the “Label vendors” drop down selection box. Then choose 5164 in the “Product number” box. Click OK.
You’ll see that a picture of the label you selected appear in the Label panel.
Then click “New Document”.
At this point, you’ll have a blank document formatted to print Avery 5164 labels. To insert pictures, just click on the “Insert” tab. Then click on Picture. Choose the picture you want to insert. Once the picture is inserted, you’ll want to format the picture. Click on “Position” in the Format Tab. There are lots of options at this point, I could write pages of instructions because I’m only guessing what you need.
If you need high quality low cost labels, check out Macolabels.com . Our equivalent to the Avery 5164 laser label is the Maco ML-0600. You can check it out here:
